Celtic wiki www.kerrydalestreet.com says of the huddle "It was introduced to Celtic by former Captain Tony 'Mogga' Mowbray (1991 - 1995) who felt it would be a great way of instilling a bit more spirit into the players, and cohesiveness into the team. The Huddle is now an integral part of our pre-match ritual, and serves to unite the players, the team, and the fans in preparedness to face our footballing adversaries. It bonds us, and readies us for those we are about to commence battle with."

As well as covering a couple of sportsmans' dinners and a kickboxing tournament over the last two weeks I have covered nine matches, from schools football to amateur cup finals to the Scottish Football League Third division play offs – I photographed both legs of Arbroath’s semi final win over Cowdenbeath and also the home leg of their final against Stranraer – when Robbie Raeside gave me one of my favourite ‘cellys’ of the season.
I’ve known Robbie for years, he played for Dundee a decade ago and lived in the same street as me for a little while, he’s a smashing bloke and I was delighted when he headed Arbroath into the lead just before half time – and came our way to celebrate. The paper didn’t use this - they ran with my pic of his goal instead but I still love it.
